Why White Work?
When we make decisions about things, we try to do what’s right according to how we, as individuals, see things. And a lot of the time we may decide what we want to do, but we really struggle with how to get it done. Especially when it’s about something that’s hard to talk about, like anti-oppression and racism... because we don’t know enough about it.
When we learn more about anti-oppression: like where and when it started, how to talk about it and even how to do something about it, the topic gets more approachable. And we become aware that as White people, all of our lives we’ve been taught and conditioned to believe that we’re different from non-whites. That we’re better… which often leads to feelings of guilt and shame. But we also learn that every White person is not responsible for Systemic Oppression, White Supremacy is.
We’ll recognize that there are two kinds of White people - those who want to hold onto their privilege and those who don’t. And for those who don’t, there's an opportunity to do some good. That’s what White Work is all about - it offers a way to use our privilege for good. It’s a way to level the playing field at work and in the world… while still feeling good about being who you are.
